Wicklow Gaol Mass to celebrate month of the holy souls

Next Wednesday (28th November), the Wicklow community is invited to attend a special mass to celebrate the month of the Holy Souls.

 The mass will be celebrated by Fr. Donal Roche in the main Gaol building on Kilmantin Hill on Wednesday 28thNovember at 7pm.  Everyone is warmly welcome. 

 Hosting this special mass in the Gaol building is particularly poignant in light of the many inmates who passed away whilst incarcerated here.

Many of the inmates, who died during here over the two centuries that the prison was open, would never have had the dignity of a proper funeral. A special mass for these forgotten souls was held in the Gaol last February.

 Next Wednesday’s mass invites the wider community to celebrate the holy souls of their loved ones past. The local community is at the heart of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the re-opening of Wicklow Gaol as an historic attraction this year.
